Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Russell Carson Eliminated in 22nd Place; Thorsten Schafer in 21st ($35,377 Each)

Thorsten Schafer (21st Place- $35,377)

Ben Lamb raised to 30,000 under the gun and was met with an all-in reraise of 254,000 by Russell Carson. Action really picked up when Thorsten Schafer, who was on the button, moved all in over the top for 484,000. As if that wasn't enough, Joe Ebanks quickly called from the big blind. Lamb seemed shocked by the turn of events and wisely decided to get out of the ways.

Ebanks: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Schafer: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Carson: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}

Both Carson and Schafer knew they were in big trouble, especially considering they were sharing cards. After the flop came down {5-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}, the two at-risk players stood from the table and prepared to make their exit. The {8-Diamonds} fell harmlessly on the turn, followed by the {5-Hearts} on the river.

Carson, who started the hand with the smallest stack, was eliminated in 22nd place; meanwhile, Schafer was sent packing in 21st place.
